I am a senior biostatistics student, and I’m interested in both the clinical and public health policy implications of the microbiome. This is my first semester as a member of the lab, and I will be working as a biostatistician. I am preparing both for graduate studies in statistics and for medical school. My wife and I are from Kaysville, UT. We have two children, and we have another coming in December 2020.
